    Like opening a gift box to find yet another box, and another one inside that, and on and on.
    On a more practical level, how about a gun cabinet inside a safe?
    Maybe a Stack On inside a Liberty or something similar?

    What sort of sill/threshold arrangement do those vault doors have?

    I've found head and jamb details, but nothing for the sill.

    Inadequate. I'm just cleaning up somebody else's problem, so there are many things that would have been different had I been involved from the beginning.

    These are light commercial doors, but your typical residential door usually has a thin gauge threshold. So do these.

    Maybe, but watch out for these guys:

    Thunderbolt_and_Lightfoot_movie_poster.jpg

    For those who haven't seen it,
    "As a young ne'er-do-well named Lightfoot (Jeff Bridges) steals a car, an assassin attempts to shoot a minister delivering a sermon at his pulpit. The preacher escapes on foot. Lightfoot, who happens to be driving by, inadvertently rescues him by running over his pursuer and giving the preacher a lift.

    Lightfoot eventually learns that the "minister" is really a notorious bank robber known as "The Thunderbolt" (Clint Eastwood) for his use of a 20 millimeter cannon to break into a safe."
